The New and Improved GoDaddy Hosting Account

For my personal website and pet project web hosting needs, I have a GoDaddy account that I pay for. Here recently, the account was moved to new GoDaddy servers complete with SSH capability! The move wasn’t completely without problems. I had to manually update the DSN connection string for some of the databases my sites use (including this one) to get them backup and running. Regardless, I must say I’m somewhat impressed. I logged in via SSH to look around and was able to use Linux shell commands and vi to take care of some minor edits without problems. For a Linux person like me, this sort of ability is a HUGE timesaver. I am VERY happy with GoDaddy putting these sorts of abilities out there for people like me.

However, for businesses looking for secure, 100% uptime hosting, Blue Ridge Digital is the way to go.
